Both Joann and I just received this US Airways promotion email.
Good news! As a valued US Airways Dividend Miles MasterCard cardmember, you’ve been selected to receive this special limited-time offer.
Starting October 1, 2013 get 50% of your Dividend Miles back when you redeem at least 20,000 miles for an award trip. Just redeem between October 1 and November 30, 2013 for travel before March 31, 2014 and you can get up to 30,000 miles back.
Don’t miss this opportunity. Offer expires November 30, 2013. Redeem your miles for your next getaway and get miles back in your US Airways Dividend Miles account.
However, I wasn’t as fortunate as she; my mileage rebate is 25%. As per Flyer Talk, some got as low as 10% or no targeted promotion at all.
The mileage rebate is capped at 30K miles so the sweet spot for a 50% redemption would be 60K miles, yielding a 30k rebate.
One of the best values in the US Airways award program is probably from the US to North Asia. That award is 90K miles in Business.
With a 50% rebate (30K max), the award turns in 60K miles round trip to North Asia in Business Class. Amazing.
Even with my 25% rebate, the award will end up being 67.5K miles round trip.
Throw in US Airways’ generous routing rules and agents (stopover in Europe) and this is a deal that we can’t pass up!
